The University of Wyoming (UW) has selected Oracle Cloud, redesigning its 20-year-old systems to provide modern and synchronized technology platform to improve academic excellence.
The initiative incorporates finance, human resources (HR), budgeting and planning, grant management, and supply chain management systems—all of which are core to the University’s operations.
The university’s strategic Oracle Cloud implementation is named WyoCloud, which will enable UW’s department staff to access timely, accurate information at the right time to run the institution more efficiently.
UW’s new cloud-based finance, HR, grant management, and supply chain solutions include implementations of Oracle’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud, Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud, Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud, and Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud.
Oracle said the project has received tremendous support and interest from the UW community and the WyoCloud team has prioritized outreach, communication, and ongoing training efforts to help streamline the transition to the new systems.
In addition, WyoCloud has formed a network of Change Agents to provide additional channels for information and feedback on the project.
“We had a competitive proposal process where the selection committee unanimously chose the Oracle Cloud for its ability to help enable our university’s pursuit of excellence based on their history of success in supporting the specific needs of higher education,” said Jennifer Chavez, Director, Application and Database Services, at the University of Wyoming.
